In 1868, when Japan started letting in foreign tourists and visitors, this area was the wharf where the ships could come in. The name comes from the Japanese translation for 'American'. In the latter half of the twentieth century this became a very popular tourist area, thanks in no small part to the nearby Kobe Port Tower, the Kawasaki Good Times World and the Kobe Maritime Museum. In 1995 a massive earthquake struck the region, which devastated the wharf. It was rebuilt as a maritime park, and there is a memorial to the victims of the earthquake here. To the west of the Kobe Port Tower there is a pier that extends out into the sea.
